Originally from London, Ms Krzystek lived in Glasgow for more than 20 years.
In a tribute, Creative Scotland described Ms Krzystek as "an inspiring and passionate colleague applying her fierce intellect and curiosity and an extraordinary capacity for empathy and kindness to her work in representing and supporting other artists".
The organisation added: "She will be missed for her great capacity for warmth, for her mischievous sense of humour, for her infectious laugh and for her love of friends and family, whom she was deeply committed to, especially her mum, Grazia."

Before her work with the agency, Ms Krzystek performed in dance shows all around the world and spent 17 years as a key member of the award-winning Finnish performance group Oblivia.
Laura Cameron-Lewis, head of dance at Creative Scotland, who travelled with Ms Krzystek to Brussels, said: "Anna's artistic work cut a singular path which won plaudits all over the world for its uniqueness and uncompromising clarity.
"Anna herself was not difficult to work with, it was her work that resisted efforts to brush over it or squeeze it into other frames.
"It challenged you on its own terms and insistence of itself - this singularity which for me was synonymous with the singularity of her, of a unique soul within a universal continuum of humanity."
